Initial Review, 1800 Miles on Tires
January 29, 2012

I only had this tire for a few months due to selling the vehicle. Snow traction was only good in 4x4. Average, at best, in 2wd. Little to no traction on ice in 2wd. Again, in 4x4, they did fine and got me where I needed to go. Also, mud traction, in maybe a half foot of mud, they did well. They're definately not a "bogger" type tire, but they did awesome for what I was in for. Never got stuck. The crevices in the tire WILL fill up with material though (snow, mud). I never hydroplaned in any semi-deep pools of water. They did very good on the street. The noise is a bother though. I bought these in hopes that they'd be much quieter than an offroad use tire, and have similar road noise to an all season tire. You don't notice anything really below 60mph, but once you're at 75+ it's not pleasant. But what can you expect from an All Terrain tire? My driving on these tires for the 1800 miles I had them were pretty rough. Never noticed even a slight diminish of the tread before I sold the truck. Overall, it's a good tire for what it's made for, but not all around as I'd have used it.
